The Pomona College Network Guidelines require that you use up-to-date antivirus software on your computer.

Antivirus for Windows

Microsoft Security Essentials is available for free for personally owned computers. Microsoft Security Essentials is fully supported and automatically updated by Microsoft.

All college owned computers have the corporate version of Microsoft Security Essentials, called Microsoft Forefront.


In addition to antivirus software, ITS strongly recommends using anti-spyware software on your Windows computer.
